I just signed up on this forum today. I have been using and following AMD products since 2004, built my first pc by myself that year with an Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard and Winchester AMD 3500+ cpu. I followed this with the AMD FX-55, then moved on to multicore after this. I signed up with www.xtremesystems.org forums in 2006 and went to the AMD Boston show in December 2008, see here on youtube... 6GHz AMD-Boston-Overclock on Phenom II - YouTube where I met Simon Solotko and Matt Davis from AMD. I got to see how they overclocked systems with liquid nitrogen! I used the AMD Phenom 9950, then AMD Phenom II 940 and currently still using an AMD Phenom II 965 rev. C2 in my gaming desktop.
My current rig is about 5 years old now, and I am looking for new products. I am hoping to stay with AMD and looking very forward to the new Zen cores when those release in the next year or so.
Hope to talk with you all soon,
